Overview: I told him goodbye, and I will not call him. I know if I do, it will be my undoing, and I’ll once again be caught up in his spell. I will once again be…lost.
In her private journals, Rebecca laid bare her soul, revealing her obsession for the one man whose erotic demands captivated her imagination—and enslaved her forever. Now, with Rebecca no longer in his life, her former Master is lost—questioning everything he thought he knew about himself, and the control he holds in such high regard. One woman will reach out to heal him and then turn away, leaving him haunted. She is nothing he thought he wanted, and somehow everything he needs. He tells himself to forget her, but he cannot escape his desire for her. He has to have more…
Wow…Just, wow. MASTER UNDONE was a look into Mark’s mind and life and I’m glad to say that it happened. In the very beginning of the INSIDE OUT trilogy I disliked Mark, but as I got into the trilogy’s second book it became apparent that I didn’t know Mark at all.
“Turning back to the window, I assure myself that I do know my limits. What got me in trouble was forgetting my rules, getting too close to my sub when I knew she wanted more that I had to offer.”
MASTER UNDONE beings Mark’s POV right after Being Me has ended. He’s on a plain to deal with..well, family issues back in New York where Riptide is located. (I won’t get into the details because you need to read it) There, he meets the newest manager for Riptide, Crystal Smith. She’s the exact opposite of what Mark looks for in his women..uhh, I mean subs. Even down to her very hair color but he’s drawn in instantly. I really loved “watching” Mark get pulled out of his element with Crystal. It’s like we could finally see the real Mark. It was amazingly haunting to watch.
“She’s everything I don’t like in a woman, and yet I can’t take my eyes off her.”
“I need to control this woman before she does what no other woman has, and truly controls me.”
Throughout everything Mark is going through in the present Crystal really is a breath of fresh air for him. The chemistry between them is more than just hot sex; they are drawn on a deeper level and you can tell that almost instantly.
“I feel something for this woman. I swore I’d never feel anything for anyone again, and for ten years I’ve managed to hold to that vow. Now, though… I am lost and she has found me.”
Ah! I really can’t get enough of Mark. And Crystal…boy, she is exactly what Mark needs. To me, he really needed to be reminded that it’s okay to feel. He doesn’t have to be a master all the time and Crystal helps him see exactly that!
“Touch me and I’ll stop.”“I’m going to touch you, Mark. If you don’t like it, you picked the wrong girl to bury your troubles in.”
MASTER UNDONE was everything I had hoped it would be a more. The rush and excitement of seeing Mark’s walls come down (even slightly) had me giddy and wanting more. Lisa Renee Jones is brilliant and anyone who enjoyed the other two books in this magical trilogy will surely fall in love with MASTER UNDONE as well.
Oh, and I gave the extra .5 star based on the cover. I mean, how hot is the freakin’ cover!!! I was sure swooning over it even before I had read it!
